Post 9/11 the Ummah finds itself in a dilemma - how to support their religion, but not Islamists who distort Islam. The Ummah struggles with labels. An example, the word "jihad." For some the word is a form of self examination required in the Koran. For others it is a quest for a global empire and "they have taken the concept of jihad and twisted it into something ugly and indefensible in furtherance of their own hatred of others."
It is unreasonable to declare Islam is all good, or Islam is all bad, but by acknowledging the very existence of the jihad for khilafah, apologists/opportunists like LoonWatch can help the Ummah and the rest of the world stop just kicking the can down the road.
